Shrunken Heads!

I got the idea for this one while doing Sam's caricature last post. With her disembodied head and the hair tapering at the top, it reminded me a bit of a shrunken head.

Also there's a backlog of people to caricature on the Caricaturist's Caricature thread over at The Drawing Board. So 'killing three birds with one stone', a string of shrunken head caricatures is what resulted.

Here's their photos

these simply are unbelievable. What I love the most have to be the mouths, - and then the skincolor, it's absolutely fantastic. I look forward to see the video!

Piotr- Thanks! I started with a green base colour on this, building up various other colours and highlights on top.

Marcelo- I always wondered how they shrunk the heads (runs off to look it up on Wikipedia). Ewww...too gross to post my findings here.

Ale- You knucklehead! Nyah Nyah Nyah.

I wonder if families would like their group caricatures done this way? :D

Muffin- Thanks! Unfortunately the video bit the dust after the file corrupted during saving. Pissed off!

Heri- Hehe. Glad my drawing did him justice.

Ben/J- Thanks guys.

Adam- Thanks! I plan to do more of them. Even if it's just so I can record another video.

Mattias- ...but I hear the 'peeling the skin off the skull' part, can be a bit ticklish.
